Study Abroad (London)

5 May 2015 – 15 June 2015

The best 6 weeks of my life.

Because there is a very small probability that those of you reading my blog will be hopping on a plane to London anytime soon, I decided to condense my study abroad experience into one post.

Cities Visited:

  1. London
  2. Liverpool
  3. Llandudno
  4. Chester
  5. Oxford
  6. Edinburgh
  7. Glasgow
  8. Amsterdam
  9. Paris

Life lessons:

  1. Travel will teach you more about yourself than you ever thought possible.
  2. Exploring on your own is so rewarding and can even be more fun than with others.
  3. Patience is a virtue.
  4. Don’t be stingy with your money (you are traveling), but don’t go spending all of your money on clothes and champagne either.
  5. It’s worth the price tag.

Pro tips:

  1. Don’t plan weekend trips last minute. It will cause you lots of stress and extra money.
  2. ALWAYS get to your train/plane/bus early. Better safe than sorry (*cough* I missed one of my planes).
  3. Don’t plan out every day, you need some spontaneity in your experience, but it is nice to have a list of things you want to accomplish by the end of your trip.
  4. Be careful who you travel with, you may love someone, but will you still love them after being with them 24/7 for an entire weekend?
  5. Keep in touch with your family (as best you can), they want to know all of the amazing things you are up to.
